Hi John! I wanted to add my update on the message boards too. Here it is!
***You know I didn't want to "jinx" the great result by reporting prematurely that the treatment worked. It seems every time I would report positive results to you in the past, almost literally the next day I would find something new. This time I wasn't taking any chances! But I think nearly 2 months is enough time to report...the treatment seems to have kicked butt on those CAs! I actually saw less ants just a few days after doing the treatment. Relative to last time you treated, this time I only saw a few dead carcasses around the house, both inside and out. And it was at the same trouble spots where they were before. Either there were fewer around than last time, or most were killed inside their nests where I couldn't see them. And the treatment seems to be holding up well. No CAs spotted inside since a few days after treatment, and very few, if any, crawling around outside immediately next to the house and perimeter. Fingers crossed that the treatment lasts at least through the rest of this season. That fipronol is really some awesome stuff!
Thanks for checking in, and I hope you are enjoying your summer, John. Will keep in touch!***
